that is relate to the pentagon and to the u.s. military that will just be held in abians -- >> what do you think the british military and the french think when leon panetta turns up? >> well, they like leon panetta but what they will think is what they have been thinking for the last 2 1/2 years, is that the republican party in the united states has gone off the rails and is obstructing the normal order of business of the world's only super power, and this is the first time, martin, in the history of the defense department going back to the 1940s that there's been a filibuster of a nominee to head that department and i would wager that if it went to its predecessor that the department of war going all the way back in american history, this has never been done. these people are out of control in their obstructionism and the only thing to do is fight them all the way, and there are new tools that the president unveiled in his state of the union to do that with. the president should go to enlisted personnel, retired enlisted personnel all over the united states and say, chuck hagel is the first of

to express their opinion. there you have some community members talking to one of the most powerful u.s. senators in the country. one of the most powerful people in the world. and they have the opportunity to speak their mind and to say what they think. >> and they like to say thaerkd go down to the border with guns and send the army. >> yes, some people like to say that. thank god that's not what we're doing and i pray that we never do that because that's not the solution. the reality is that we need to make sure that we have comprehensive immigration reform. we have 11 million people here undocumented. the vast majority of them are contributing positively to our society and to our economy. most of them come here to work really, really hard and to actually provide for their family. >> victoria, the town hall revolt on immigration happened far away from the beltway but it's found to have an effect in washington. all week long mark yo ruco rubi others have been whining about the president interfering with legislation so the president calls them on the phone to patch things up, he plays t

in this afternoon that the white house will urge the u.s. supreme court to allow gay marriage in california. what can you tell us about that development? >> reporter: right. the obama administration announcing that it is going to file a friend of the court brief on behalf of the same-sex couple at the center of the prop 8 case with the supreme court. this is significant, martin, because when president obama came out and said that he supported same-sex marriage, you might remember that he also said he thought that it wasn't a matter for the federal government to handle. this essentially represents a shift, suggests that he believes that the federal government should be involved in this to some extent. so that is why this is really significant. in terms of timing, the supreme court hears these cases in late march so you can expect them to hear the case in late march and then decide likely sometime over the summer. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you as always. -let's get to our panel. lehigh university professor james peterson is a krnter for thegrio.com and an msnbc contributor and jared bernstein

and the astros and ron kirk, u.s. trade representative. we didn't get a real lead out of what happened on the course but a golf digest reporter says that president obama said to tiger that he's glad that his game has improved. so it sounds like a fun afternoon was had by all. >> kristin, to your point you actually asked jay carney yourself about the so-called limited access that you and your colleagues had to the president. what was the answer that jay carney gave you and were you satisfied? >> reporter: well, martin, jay basically said that, look, they handled this weekend like they handle all weekends of golf, which is to sort of read out who the president is playing with after the fact. i made the point it's not just about a game of golf, not just about getting a picture of the president playing with tiger woods. there have been other meetings that have been unannounced here at the white house and it's really more about the broader issue of access. i can tell you that jay got a lot of questions about this today, martin. he, when asked, is the white house going to do anything differe
